Zurn Introduces Patent-Pending Line of New Light Commercial Modular Drainage Products


Unparalleled Flexibility for Distributors, Contractors, and Building Owners


ERIE, PA – Zurn Industries, LLC, the leader in engineered water solutions, introduces the latest  innovative line of light commercial modular drainage products.  This patent-pending, durable drainage system offers an exclusive universal body designed for quick floor drain, roof drain, and cleanout configurations, while the rough-in cover protects the aesthetic top and allows for post-pour adjustment.


“The new Zurn Light Commercial Drainage line offers more than just superior floor drains, cleanouts and roof drains,” says Pete Frisina, Product Manager for Zurn Light Commercial. “It is also designed to align with the needs of distribution partners and plumbing contractors.  It makes their jobs easier and assures the building owners are pleased with the install.”


For distributors, Zurn offers several pre-defined plan-o-gram designs requiring half the inventory and less shelf space to cover more applications.  This is made possible by the unique modular design that allows a small footprint to build roof drains, floor drains, and cleanouts in many different sizes, shapes, and materials. A first for drains, this more-for-less model equates to a higher ROI for distributors and happier customers.


Plumbing contractors can expect to save time and money while avoiding costly rework. The new patent-pending protective cover shields the drain lines from debris while allowing a pocket to form in the concrete for post-pour adjustment.  This innovative solution assures the finish height is perfect, virtually eliminating liability associated with tripping and stagnant water ponding.  The universal cover also allows alignment of square tops to the grout line for more professional looking installations.


Zurn is excited to provide an easy-to-use Light Commercial Modular Drainage Configurator available at www.zurn.com/LCconfig.  It allows anyone to quickly configure their drain, print a simple form, and visit their local distributor to place an order.
